I Just Had To Let It Go

This song by John Lennon says what I was going through last week. How could he write so well?

People say I’m crazy doing what I’m doing
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin When I say that I’m o.k. well they look at me kind of strange
Surely you’re not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I’m lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I’m doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don’t you miss the big time boy you’re no longer on the ball

I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round I just had to let it go

Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion
Well I tell them there’s no problem, only solutions
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I’ve lost my mind
I tell them there’s no hurry I’m just sitting here doing time

I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go

    Thej – Think of it this way – your not letting it go, you’re letting it grow! :-) This is not my positive spin, it’s Clapton’s – http://www.lyricsfreak.com/e/eric+clapton/let+it+grow_20051506.html.

    Clapton’s song may not be as powerful as Watching the Wheels lyrically but musically, it kicks ass!
